ATTALLA, Ala. (AP) - A column manufacturing and milling company is planning to close its plant in Attalla.

WBRC-TV reported Tuesday (https://bit.ly/1IqLQPz ) that Crown Column and Millwork issued a 60-day notice for its plant in Attalla to close. Plant spokesman Lance Servais says the closure was part of a strategy by the plant’s new owners.

Servais says employees have been offered jobs at the company’s plant in Troy - roughly 190 miles south - and will be offered bonuses if they stay with the company for the 60 days until the facility closes.

The closure is expected to impact about 100 workers.

Attalla Mayor Larry Means says the job losses will cut the city’s occupational tax revenue, which is expected to have an impact on the city’s budget.
